Autumn is pretty much around the corner now, colder and darker evenings are upon us already. Nevermind, the gardens can still look amazing! I have put out a hanging basket that I made which has succulents in it, and I have decorated it in a bit of ‘bling’, that has certainly cheered up my patio! Everything is still flourishing and oh so green because of the recent wet weather.

The runner beans have been a bit slow, they are growing but not as well as they could be, lots of water is needed, I don’t have an outside tap so watering for me is difficult and time consuming. The tomatoes have grown but do not seem to be ripening, may have to bring some in and put them with a banana! The potatoes are doing ok, a bit of slug damage but they taste lovely.
